Best Child Psychologists
Child psychology is a branch of psychology that is responsible for understanding, describing, diagnosing, and treating the behaviors in children. A child psychologist is specially trained in dealing with childhood disorders and difficulties. They are proficient in conducting psychometric assessments on children for a more objective outlook and in forming a rapport with children so that they can talk freely.
Child psychology is a very important and diverse field in our country. For a few years now there has been major growth in the areas of educational psychology and school mental health services. Following the same pattern, there has been a huge development in numbers and facilities catered for child mental healthcare.
A child needs to be seen as an entity both separate and connected to their guardians. A child's emotions and thoughts are influenced by their perception of the world. But they also absorb other people's emotions when they can't form their own. It can be seen in younger children (also infants) that when they do not seem to understand a situation they copy the emotions of others, usually of their caregiver.
At Udgam we believe our resources to be efficient as we cater to the child, parents, and families. Our clinic has been growing in terms of facilities, and currently, we have multiple departments to cater to children and adolescents. Parents tend to run around trying to find a special educator for their child or an occupational therapist to set up meetings between the two parties, which can cause a lot of stress.
By providing quality care, support, intervention, and multidisciplinary services for the various psychological, and behavioral issues, the clinic tries to bridge the gap of the time lost in understanding the problem and then finding the right professional for it. There is child psychology and psychiatry for mental healthcare, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and special education.
School mental health is also a rising service in our clinic. Many schools have taken up the responsibility to focus on mental health. For this, they believe in engaging with licensed professionals, who can serve as a source of information and treatment opportunities for students and staff.
There are plenty of models in school mental health programs, where our specialists are joined with schools to provide optimum guidance to the students and management. Our team is aware of the school’s lack of proper methodology to instill psychological guidance in their school systems.
The treatment and management plans for children with ADHD, Autism, and learning disabilities are an area of expertise of child psychologists in Delhi.
Another advantage of a child psychologist is the services they provide in parenting where any doubts about rearing the child or facing burnout are addressed. We at Udgam recognize the hard work that goes into bringing up your child, and the personal stressors that come with it.
We encourage every individual to devote enough time to self-care, as we believe in a healthy parenting style. We have both online and clinic-based therapy plans to serve you in a better manner.
